are you familiar with the Flying Burrito Brothers Gram stuff?

Jerry was sweet and very unique on the pedal steel but nobody ever compared to Sneeky Pete (RIP). Gilded Palace of Sin is a masterpiece.

I'm staring at a framed copy of Gilded Palace of Sin on my wall - and that hot young brunette on the right in the door.

from what i hear seeing Gram in those days was either a fiasco or the second coming. it varied from show to show.

lets not forget the International Submarine Band.

I take it out about once a year on a bar crawl...let me tell you it'll turn a head. Hah. I once (in the early eighties) dated Randy Meisner's ex-wife in Mictchell Nebraska, yeah the one he wrote Take It To the Limit for. She gave me his clothes and his Billboards Awards necklace and introduced me to Glen Frey at her annual Xmas party...he was absolutely friggin' nuts...Joe Walsh was there (another Kansas boy) and he was mild compared to Frey. Jennifer was her name.
